The Big Jubilee Lunch

Join us for food, fun and festivities!

Bristol Cathedral and partners are delighted to announce a Big Jubilee Lunch on College Green on Sunday 5 June to celebrate HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Join communities from across the city for a day of fun, food and festivities.

This full day free event is suitable for all ages and includes live music (curated by St George’s Bristol), food and family friendly games and activities, all on College Green. Bristol based live performance highlights include:

  • Lady Nade
  • Phil King
  • Freddie Lewis
  • City of Bristol Brass Band
  • Kitty Stewart
  • Samantha Lindo

Local charities and good causes will be running activities throughout the day, including:

  • Build a royal paper flotilla with Bristol Cathedral
  • Make your own crown with Bristol Libraries

As a Big Lunch event we want to play our part in ending food poverty in the city and so will be asking for donations for local food charities.

A full timetable of events throughout the day will be released nearer to the event.

What is The Big Lunch?

The Big Lunch is the UK’s annual celebration for neighbours and communities. Every year in June, since the idea began in 2009, millions of people come together where they live to enjoy food and fun in a nationwide act of community and friendship. The people who take part fundraise on average £8million each year for good causes. The Big Lunch is an idea from the Eden Project made possible by The National Lottery, and this year becomes The Big Jubilee Lunch as an official part of HM The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations on 2-5 June. Her Royal Highness the Duchess of Cornwall is patron.
